Hi there! Gr8 site! I would like to ask you if is it possible to add one of these galleries, in particular this one : Photograph Gallery for fast download speeds in a Wordpress post! I've been trying but with no lucky :( Thanks again.

Unfortunately I have no knowledge of Wordpress so cannot say if this is possible or not. Perhaps someone can comment on this?

Hi Stu... css genius no doubt

I seem to have gotten the galley (right thumbs) working in Firefox but IE 7 trashes it. As you attempt to click thumbs it throws the thumbs into the main image area? I added your strict DOCTYPE thinking that might be it but no luck. The thumbs jump into the main image area?

This is obviously something I'm doing. I am "choke ... gag" putting your DIV's into a table cell. Your galleries work fine in IE7

is there any way you could split up the thumbnail section and the large image section so that i could stick the thumbnails in my sidebar and the large image section in my contect section? i've been messing with everything, but nothing i do seems to work correctly and quite frankly i'm not sure what i need to be changing to make it work right. my sidebar is name 'sidebar-b' and my content area is called 'content'.
thanks so much!

Hi Stu,

Long time since Portland! I see you just keep improving. Sadly I do not have the time now.

I like the gallery code and utilised it on some pages. Sadly I did a bit of tweaking to get it right and for some reason it is not working in Firefox now. perhaps I should not have gone overboard with the fancy stuff like "glow", but it does look good on the site, if only in IE7 (sigh).

Anyway, glad to see you still flying the CSS flag and trying to persuade us to use it.

Hi Stu,

There is one issue with this menu - browsers downloads the target image first and the thumbnail later. It looks like browsers give higher priority to content of the <a></a> section than to the background style param even if the content has the style param display set to none.

Fortunately there is vary simple resolution!

It is enough if befor the menu you "display" all thumbnails with style param display set to none!

Simply put following html code before the menu for yeach thumbnail:
<div style="display:none;"><img src="london/thumb2.jpg"/></div>

Beat the browser with its own weapon!
I propose adding this small trick to the menu code.

Apart form that, very good menu!

I'm having a real problem getting this to work in IE6. When I first visit the page with my gallery on (very first visit - before the images are cached), and click on a thumbnail, sometimes nothing happens until I move the cursor off the thumbnail. It seems to be random as some thumbnails are fine. Once I've looked at all images there are no problems. I have tried the exact same code as is here, and still have the problem. Any help is greatly appreciated. I really want to use this css gallery. Thanks in advance.

David, check that you have a standards compliant doctype and that you have the default links styled.
a, a:visited {color:#000;}
The style can be anything you like, but the default links MUST be styled for this to work in IE.

Stu. Hi.

Thank you for responding to my comment. It is much appreciated. I have decided to use your 'simplest photo gallery' method instead. Which works a treat. So thanks.

I also emailed you to enquire as to whether you would mind me using this gallery method in one of my "web templates" (which I make available to download from my site I will include a link back to cssPlay on every page of the template.

Thanks. David.
